(I posted this the other day to lj_clients, but got no response. So I thought I'd try here -- at the very least, I'm hoping someone can point me to a place where I can find the answer if they don't have the answer itself.)
I have a rather interesting problem that I'm wondering if anyone out there has run into: deleting a friend group and adding another completely hoses my client.
Say I have 5 groups. I delete group 3 and add one. Now, in my client, I try to post to a specific group. Nothing works.
Some testing with the ?filter=x portion of the friends page URL revealed something interesting: http://pyran.livejournal.com/friends?filter=2
brings up a quasi-error message ("There are a few reasons why you might not see posts on this friends page..."), but only when I'm logged in -- when I'm not logged in, or when someone else views the page, they get my friends page. Now in my tests, I did, in fact, delete the first group. But this implies that when I'm logged in, I have no first friend group. My "first" group (the one listed on the groups page in LJ) appears to have an allowmask of 4. This is a problem for me when attempting to build the allowmask.
Has anyone else run into this? And if so, know of any workarounds? Any help is greatly appreciated.
